    It's really scary to see the all the digits on the receipts with expiry date. This can be misused by someone easily by just remember few 3 digit back of the card. Why can't card companies make it safer.

    "HMV stated that they leave the full numbers on receipts too, saying that it is an incentive for customers not to create litter."

    The Sage machine we use only prints the full number on the shop copy and not the customers receipt.

    If I use contactless and ask for a receipt many will just press reprint, a one key option, as opposed to the several keys needed to get a customer copy. A bit of a failing in the system really.

    I wouldn't bother wasting your time to reply. OP seems to post and run.

    Oh, plus everything is a scam. Some great reading in their other threads.

    Not scam, but stupidity here. Talking about online criminals and lose 100 million/billion money in a year. If they can't change simple thing how are they going to stop online criminals? I hope you will get some awareness rather speak something else.
